For over 20 years, ESIP meetings have brought together the most innovative thinkers and leaders around Earth science data, thus forming a community dedicated to making Earth science data more discoverable, accessible and useful to researchers, practitioners, policymakers, and the public. The theme of this year’s meeting is "Data for All People: From Generation to Use and Understanding."

Feedback form is now closed.
The ESIP Biological Data Standards Cluster has been working on a primer for data managers new to biological data standards. After several rounds of community feedback, the cluster chose to share an initial version that was published to the ESIP Figshare (https://doi.org/10.6084/m9.figshare.16806712). Now that the primer is available, the cluster is beginning to look at use cases associated with the primer to help us determine 1) What questions come up when you work through the primer? 2) How can we help people using the primer? 3) What next steps become evident?

This session with focus on the first question in the primer "Do you want to provide context and understandability to your data?". We will have a round of lightning talks on the four metadata standards provided as responses in the primer to this question (CSDGM, EML, ISO, and MIxS). Representatives for these standards will provide information that will help users select the metadata standard for the data they are working with. Following the lightning talks we will go into breakout groups with a dataset and work through the process of selecting a metadata standard. We will use the information gathered from this session to guide our next steps in the cluster such as a creating a decision tree and/or instructional videos.

How to prepare for this session:
1. Review the primer infographic.
2. Consider how your current biological data workflows make use of (or don’t make use of) the tools and techniques suggested in the primer.
